A wine to ward off evil spirits or an icy winter. Consisting mainly of press wine, the last drops pressed from the skins after fermentation this blend is concentrated in the extreme.

While the spiciness of French Oak lends an air of sophistication, this is not a wine that will be revered for its subtlety.

The Quentin Tarantino remake of Sideways.

Producer Information

Established in 1998, Cloof Wine Estate is located in the Darling region of South Africa. Winemakers Christopher Van Dieren and Frederick Kalumpie are fast forging an enviable reputation for this forward thinking winery. They have also won many eco awards for their philosophy of sustainable farming. They have recently had to enlarge their cellar to cope with the growing interest in their wines.

You can read all about their biodiversity here...
We have partnered with CapeNature and proclaimed our natural remnants as a Voluntary Conservation Site with their Stewardship program and pledged to manage the veld in accordance to their conservation laws and ethics.

Since 2006, we have been reintroducing locally indigenous wildlife into the reserve including Eland, Bontebok, Zebra, Red Hartebees, Gemsbok and Springbok. Animals which were already there includes Grey Rhebuck, Grysbok, Duiker, Steenbok and several smaller predators such as Caracal, African wild cat, Honey Badger, the elusive Cape fox, bat-eared fox, yellow mongoose, striped polecat and Cape clawless otter.

Also occurring naturally is a variety of birds, reptiles and amphibians which are now also protected from persecution. Some of the endangered or protected species include blue cranes, secretary birds, black harriers and two tortoise species (i.e. angulate tortoise or rooipensskilpad and the parrot-beaked tortoise). The critically endangered geometric toroise use to occur in the area, but has gone extinct since the 90's. We are now working with CapeNature to try and restock the reserve.
